Boston middle-market private equity firm BV Investment Partners made a majority investment in C.F. Stinson, partnering with the family owners of the textiles company. Keith Stinson and Glenn Stinson, the third generation of the family owned company, will continue to manage the target and maintain an ownership interest.
C.F. Stinson, based in Rochester Hills, Michigan, designs and markets textiles for commercial interiors, including customers in the hospitality and health care sectors. The company uses a “tech-enabled” textiles sample system developed by its subsidiary, Sample Technologies, to allow customers access to its fabrics and order samples. The Sample Technologies software sits on the desktops of designers, allowing them to custom design furniture or other objects with fabric.
